On every screen (page of the form) you will find a Form Navigation contents box, this links directly to every page of the submission. Click the link to jump directly to the page you want.

You can also click 'next page' or 'previous page' on the top or bottom of each page to move forward or backward through the submission.


If you wish to leave a partially completed submission, press 'save' and log out. When you log back in and click on the 'My Submissions' link at the top of the screen, you will find a list of any submissions you have started or submitted. You can reopen your draft submission and start where you left off.

You can also download any submission, whether draft or completed, as a PDF. Click on the 'Download' button located at the bottom of the last page of the submission form.


You will find a Review and Submit button at the bottom of the Navigation Panel. You need to review your form before you can submit it.

Once you have reviewed your form you can submit it by clicking on 'Submit' at the top of the screen or on the navigation panel. You will not be able to submit your form until all the compulsory questions are completed.

Once you have submitted your form, no further editing or uploading of support materials is possible.

When you submit your form, you will receive an automated confirmation email with a copy of your submitted form attached. This will be sent to the email you used to register.

If you do not receive a confirmation of submission email then you should presume that your submission has NOT been submitted.


You may need to upload/submit attachments to support your submission. This is very simple, but requires you to have the documents saved on your computer, or on a storage device.

You need to allow enough time for each file to upload before trying to attach another file. Files can be up to 25MB each; however, we do recommend trying to keep files to a maximum of 5MB – the larger the file, the longer the upload time.


Most internet browsers (including Firefox v2.0 and above; Safari; and Google Chrome) have spell checking facilities built in – you can switch this function on or off by adjusting your browser settings.
